FNL accused of spreading race hate ahead of Burundian elections - rumours of an alliance between FNL and Frodebu
Burundi leader addresses security; rebels link rivals to Rwanda's Kagame
Even though the president of the republic says that measures have been taken to neutralize Palipehutu-FNL, it can be seen on the ground that the group continues to sensitize the population in favour of Frodebu and to the detriment of CNDD-FDD [National Council for the Defence of Democracy-Forces for the Defence of Democracy; former rebels who, like Frodebu and the FNL, draw their support from the majority Hutu], according to various sources...
According to the information that we were able to gather from the ground among the population, the CNDD-FDD is being demonized by the FNL. They are saying things such as: Hussein Rajabu and Peter Nkurunziza, respectively secretary-general and president of the party [CNDD-FDD], are Tutsis, traitors and former deputies to [Rwandan President] Paul Kagame.
